societal expectations

one of my posts from last night was regarding a little red dress and what you would think of someone wearing that dress...for the most part the comments were positive...

One of the comments though...someone said...first thought would be...what a this does not upset me...but it did bring to mind what society expects women to dress and act like...

Instead of applauding women who are comfortable and proud of our sexuality we are called sluts...As a society we are getting better at not judging people by what they look like or what they wear...

Think about what it was like less than a hundred years ago...when only women of doubtful moral standards wore pants...Or two hundred years ago when women were seen but not heard and considered property...

We are well on our way to acceptance...but we still have a ways to go...

i'm not trying to say you should be judged adversely if you decide to wear that dress out in public, but the reality is that most people will thing "what a slut". now, for a lot of guys that's going to be a good thing in their mind. for a lot of women, not so much. women can be catty that way. society is what it is, and you're right, women can wear a heck of a lot less today and not necessarily be considered a slut than they could even 50 years ago. but until we all walk around in the buff together, people will be judged one way or the other by the way they dress. it's a reality of life.

ok. Now lets get a few things out honest. if you have read the news, watched the news, or heard the news. It honestly does not matter what you where. There is always one person to judge you adversely. Just to be a jerk.
Okay now for mainstream - you know I know you are not wearing that to a 'high - power sales meeting.' It will distract from the topic and meeting. But all know when you are out on the town with your friends or partner... That it is fine. Oh and 1playfulgal usually the one that calls you a slut..either can't get into the dress, or there spouse can't get into the dress. It is called making some one feel small for your own failure to achieve

"One of the comments […] did bring to mind what society expects"

Why be so pessimistic? Why treat isolated negative voices as if they expressed a majority view, especially in light of the fact that "for the most part the comments were positive"? I believe the 'society' is much nicer than the few negative voices might like us to think.

The intolerant thrive on the fear they instill in other people, for it allows them to 'divide and rule'. Forums like this one let one hear what the real 'silent majority' thinks. All creatures, by design, love sex and everything to do with it. Some, however, are afraid to face up to it. The bully has usually been bullied him/herself in the past.
